Abstract

Cloud computing is a technology facilitating broad access to diverse computing ser-vices, predominantly reliant on centralized mechanisms for resource allocation. This study introduces a decentralized platform, harnessing crowdsensing and machine learning, for cloud provisioning and pricing. It involves a blockchain-based trading platform, enabling sellers (primary users) to auction their cloud resources to buyers (secondary users) while considering buyer reputations. To incentivize crowd sensors in gathering and sharing information about available cloud resources, an incentive mechanism is implemented. The pricing is estimated through a supervised machine learning algorithm, specifically linear regression, incorporating critical values and the Vickrey-Clarke-Groves (VCG) algorithm. Results indicate that supervised linear re-gression is a superior approach for enhancing overall utilization. This research pre-sents a robust methodology for integrating cloud computing and machine learning in practical pricing decisions.
